Hokuto no Ken is a game for the Sega Master System that was completely changed for western markets and retitled “Black Belt”. The game is based on a TV anime called Fist of the North Star (Hokuto no Ken).
This is an English translation of Hokuto No Ken for the Sega Master System.
At last, the game is now fully playable in English as it always should. You’ll notice this is more challenging than Black Belt and way better than the NES game.

User Review Information
Terrific translation for a terrific licensed game!Reviewed By: Venomrush1997 on 22 Apr 2020
As good as the localization of this game is, it’s just nothing compared to the original license. No spelling/grammar errors from what I can tell. The only thing I would say that would improve this a ton is if the title screen was edited to have the English logo to make it more authentic. Overall this was definitely a treat to Fist of the North Star fans, and to those who are looking for good licensed games on older systems.
